B.I.G. Supplies are proud to announce a new distribution contract with DHL the worlds largest logistics company that is part of Deutsche Post DHL. This new working partnership will allow us to deliver our goods faster across the southern regions of the UK including the midlands. Whilst the existing warehouse and distribution hub located in Warrington, Cheshire will primarily service the Northern regions of the UK including the Republic of Ireland.
Providing our customers with a more effective distribution service
After consultations with all of the leading UK based logistic delivery & storage operators, only DHL demonstrated an innovative infrastructure that will compliment our SAP warehouse management system. Also with DHL operating the largest courier network in the world we quickly recognised the support they can provide with our international export and import network partners. The DHL (Lots) Live Order Tracking system will be an excellent tool for our customers and internal management team who can view real time data on the progress of deliveries in this fast paced industry. With the automotive industry sector continually improving their supply chain times from despatch to the goods being delivered. B.I.G. Supplies have implemented phase 1 of a 5 year strategy to invest in the most effective technology to provide our customers with the most efficient service. By using the DHL Birmingham distribution hub storage facility we have the capability when required to deliver bulk products to industrial customers at short notice to remote regions in the South.
SAP Warehouse Management System
With the recent implementation of the SAP Warehouse Management System at our Warrington distribution hub we made significant improvements in efficiency by increasing automation when processing orders, managing stock and despatching goods. The new system has transformed the operation into an adaptive fulfilment supply chain environment whilst providing a high level of processes and inventory transparency that will benefit our customers.
